My Recipes

These are the recipes we use the most often.  Many are my own creation, some are inspired by others and “tweaked” to my families needs by yours truly, and some are straight re-creations of other brilliant cooks’ recipes; if so, there will be a link to the original recipe in my post.  All of them are delicious, and I hope you like them!

Most are also fairly allergy-friendly; we are a dairy, egg, peanut, wheat free and fructose-limited household, so all recipes will at least be free of those offenders!  Any other allergens in the recipes are usually easily substituted.  

As always, YOU must read labels and ensure the ingredients you use are safe for your family. Never take anyone’s ‘word’ for it regarding allergy-free ingredients – not even mine! Many of these recipes were written before I knew about some of our food intolerances, and have ingredients that are no longer safe even for us. One day I’ll have time to go back and edit, but until then, always consider your own food tolerances before proceeding.

Happy cooking!

    As one Allergy Mom to another, thank you for sharing your journey and your recipes. After jumping through lots of hoops and such, we were fortunate enough to find the support of a physician who put our multiple food allergy prone kiddo on sublingual immunotherapy (google Allergy Choices) and a 4 day rotational diet. (with 18 food allergies, we have to be creative with cooking.)I grew up in rice country where we ate rice with milk and sugar for breakfast. Millet pudding is made much the same way. If your family can tolerate it, you might try millet or amaranth or quinoa for variety at breakfast (or any other recipe where you use rice). The flours can be used to make pancakes, too. :o)

    • Mama says:

      Thank you! I’m glad you’ve gotten help for your little one, and I will keep the therapy and rotational diet’s in mind, just in case we need those, too.

      I definitely understand being creative in cooking – I’m just starting to get into quinoa, so there’s lots to learn there. We actually just got a bag of millet puffs for Mr. Charm to try…hopefully he will like those. During the week we thought we just had to be wheat free, I made some millet pancakes that were delicious! I know he would be ecstatic with something resembling his ‘cake-cake’s’ for breakfast again. 🙂

      I’m going to give quinoa flakes a try for breakfast some morning. It seems as though you can use those just as you would oatmeal.

      Anyway, thanks for commenting!

  2. I don’t even know how I found your blog but I’m glad I did!!! My toddler has dairy and egg allergies and I’ve recently started my own little blog with my ramblings and DF/EF recipes. I’m going to try some of your recipes- I’m always looking for more ideas for our limited diet!

    • Carrie says:

      My toddlers egg and dairy allergies were what started me on this path, too, so I know where you’re coming from! I’m glad you’re here – hope the recipes work out for you! I visited your blog…LOVE your Faith!! And you’re right: if it happened to their kids, they’d adjust, too. You do what you have to do, right? 🙂

    I am finding some helpful tips on your blog. My little guy is almost 2 and has reactions to dairy, soy, nuts, eggs, beef, all beans, and gluten. So far. I have been nursing him and avoiding these foods with him. It is not easy! We are having absolutely no help from the medical community here so I am figuring it all out on my own. Thank goodness for internet and mommy bloggers!

    • Carrie says:

      Hi Tina! I’m so glad you stopped by! I read a little bit of your blog and I’m so sorry you’re also having a hard time finding supportive medical help. 🙁 Your kids are gorgeous, though! It sounds like you have a wonderful family.

      Lots of my recipes won’t be terribly helpful as-is for you, since goat milk, eggs, and beef are very prevalent in our diets. But all my recipes are wheat free (double check for gluten; we’re only wheat free so some gluten may appear) and you can easily substitute for the milk, eggs and beef in almost all of the recipes I’ve posted. If you need any help with that, just let me know!

      I’m so glad you’ve discovered better health with your elimination diet. This journey is NOT one I would have picked to go on, but I’ve become a Real Food enthusiast along the way. All of us are so much healthier eating real, un-processed foods. Good luck on your journey, and keep in touch!

      And yes to the mommy bloggers! If not for them, two years ago I would have been sunk! LOL

    Garlic and onions are fructans and can be a problem for FMers. I see you have these in some of your recipes. Please advise.

    • Carrie says:

      Hi Lorrie!

      You are correct; garlic and onions are fructans. If you’ve recently popped in for the recipes, it would be easy to miss, but this entire blog is the story of our journey of discovery and coping with myriad food issues. It took us a while before we realized that of all the things that can cause problems for FMer’s, fructans are absolutely the biggest trigger for me and my son. I published many recipes before we learned that truth, and since prior to our realization I made everything with garlic and onion, those recipes all have those ingredients in them.

      I haven’t gone back to edit those ingredients out for two reasons: one, I simply have not had the time to do so, and two, onion and garlic are delicious and many people do NOT have problems with those two ingredients. I assume any food allergic/intolerant folks will adjust recipes to suit their needs.

      However, thanks to your comment, I now realize that perhaps people early on in their journey might make incorrect assumptions about some of my ingredients. At the least, I’ll add a caveat statement on my recipes tab! Thanks for bringing this to my attention. 🙂

    I made this bread recipe today with a couple of modifications.
    First…omitted/ substituted equal parts of Teff Flour and Tapioca starch for the almond flour. This worked great.
    Added in 2 tsp. of caraway seed.
    I free formed the loaf into a french bread shape. The bread baked up very nicely and has appealing appearance.
    I am stuffing my face with it right now.
    Thanks Carrie.

    • Carrie says:

      Hi Valerie! Oh, wow! That sounds great! I’m glad you shared your almond flour replacement; I’ve been tweaking to find a good replacement for this since Jed can’t have almonds now…I’m going to try this next!

      So happy you’re enjoying the bread. Hugs!
